Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning and Design, or APDesign, has announced an $8 million gift — the largest gift in the college's history. 

According to APDesign Dean Tim de Noble, the alumnus and spouse are longtime Kansans and were positively impacted by their higher education and desire to help others achieve. The funds, to arrive through their estate in the future, will be invested with an expected distribution of about $400,000 annually. 

A majority of annual distributions will support full-ride scholarships for Kansas students with financial need and a minimum 3.5 grade point average in at least their third year of study in the College of Architecture, Planning and Design. The donors, who asked to remain anonymous, also designated a portion of the distributions to support the dean's excellence fund, which provides flexibility to the college's leader to address emerging opportunities and priorities.
